The Water Cycle

“We forget that the water cycle and the life cycle are one.” So said marine scientist, conservationist, and explorer Jacques Cousteau.

With this set of lessons, students explore this dynamic cycle that sustains and fuels life on earth. A corresponding direct instruction lesson helps students determine and trace central ideas in a text.
